Forum: etree Subject: Help! Dumas Works 07 is Missing Pages 556-557

Hey gang, over Christmas I had my laptop w/ me, so I took the page images from
http://www.archive.org/texts/texts-details-db.php?collection=toronto&collectionid=worksalexdumas07dumauoft

(the first of Dumas' Marie Antoinette saga), and proofed 'em all (passes the time. OK, I'm strange, shut up.)

Anyway, still in transit, I've just about got the thing done, but discover there's no pages 556-557 (image 581 is Page 555; image 582 is page 558).

Err, the book ends on image 590, so we're talking right there.

It's not a huge deal, I had a sorta copy with me, but just of the first 300 pages (sometimes Memoirs of a Physician is broken down in to Joseph Balsamo/MemPhys). These are kinda important pages that can be hard to track down (after all, the chapter on page 558 is titled "Doom"), so if anyone can redo those two again, or point me in some direction, I'd be much obliged.

Else, well, guess people'll have to wait 'till next week or whenever Amazon sends me a copy.

Cheers and happy holidays.

Cool, thanks for all that.

I split the title up when I proofed.

Volume one (Memoirs of a Physician) is here, if you guys want it--already been corrected once... sure there will be more changes, that's an evil OCR.

Volume 2, (Joseph Balsamo), is available here.

These'll show up on Gutenberg eventually, but if you want them earlier, enjoy. And thanks for fixing those images.

I've got my scanners on it, hopefully we'll have this corrected within the next week. if you are ever feeling fruity and notice more errors in the toronto collection, you can email me at molly AT archive.org (if it's missing pages) or submit an error report (if it's something small like a mistake in metadata). we appreciate the free QA work!

Gosh, thank you ever so much. Kind of scarey that we missed that page. We are trying to perfect our processes in toronto.

If you QA a book and it checks out, please post a review for the book saying so. If we have more errors like this, then maybe we should put it into our workflow.

Well geeze, that's fast! Thanks, and I'll just split the text up for now (Into Balsamo/Memoirs).

I'm actually going through the entire Marie Antoinette series (Works Dumas 7-9), but that's the first error I've seen.

/They're two-column books from the 19th Century, and I know from experience whenever I put something like that up at the Distributed Proofers, they send death threats.

Semi-related, as part of the Million Books Project, you've got With Fire & Sword plus The Deluge, vii by Henry Sienki--Seinke--Sien--the 1905 Nobel Laureate. These are much cleaner scans, and I'm on them as well, but I happen to have Volume I of the Deluge (as well as Pan Michael)... completes the trilogy, and are among the most requested (non-pulp) books around.

Would you like the images for V I of the Deluge? I can give an Abbyy set of tifs. It's a good copy I'm working on... none of that A.L. Burt stuff here.

I'll bring this to the attention of the correct people at the Archive, thanks!
